Glen Washington Masterpiece

Now a then I hear a reggae artist that makes me smile. Glen Washington happens be one of those artists. DJ Michael Ealey told me to check him out. I’m so glad he turned me on to this talented, amazing artist. Glen Washington is a spiritual singer that has a message in his music. Glen Washington’s vocals are husky and raspy, that has that soulful old school quality. Born in the parish of Clarendon Jamaica, Glen Washington has been in the reggae music scene since the early 1970s. I can see why, his music is awesome! Glen Washington made his first hit record “Rockers Not Crackers” in 1978. It took him 20 years to release another hit single “Kindness For Weakness”. While writing this blog, I’m listening to his past albums as well as his newest album. I can say I have not heard a song I don’t like. I can’t believe I have never heard of Glen Washington. With Glen Washington’s “Masterpiece” album you can’t go wrong. He delivers a strong album that is amazing, wonderful and spiritual. If you like Reggae artists that are easy to understand and has a message in their music, then Glen Washington is an artist you should check out. I’m putting him on the top of my play list. The Masterpiece album gets 5 out of 5 stars from me. You can listen to “Masterpiece” on Streetwise Radio’s Big Splif’s 420 Reggae. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on Athena365, MyGen365, ITunes and Live365. Also available on Pandora.
